Eco Maps option

Post by azelaya » Tue Sep 18, 2012 12:20 pm

Unfortunately, the Eco maps option is only applicable for projects in the U.S. It will only work with National Land Cover Data (NLCD) tree cover, land cover & impervious cover imagery, which is only available in the States. This option is seldom used by Eco users in the states also as an Eco project has to be stratified and also needs to have project land use classes matched up to the NLCD land classes to allow for visualizing results on maps. In short, it has limited functionality within the Eco application even in the States and we typically recommend that U.S. users consider using i-Tree Vue if they are interested in using the free NLCD imagery for producing coarse benefit estimates.
